Visa and ADP have announced an agreement to offer employers the ALINE Pay by ADP electronic payroll program. The ALINE Pay program includes the ALINE Card by ADP, a Visa prepaid card that can be integrated into an organisation’s current payroll system as a standalone product or as part of the ALINE Pay solution. The agreement is a multi-year extension of their existing relationship that helps make employer payroll more efficient.
“Increasingly, employees are benefitting from the prepaid suite of products for receiving payroll with immediate and secure access to their funds, especially underbanked and unbanked employees who have limited or no access to traditional banking relationships,” said Brian Triplett, head of North America prepaid products, Visa Inc. “By working together, Visa and ADP continue to help businesses address the needs of an evolving workforce, while saving time and money with a paperless solution.”
“As a leader in payroll distribution and processing, ADP helps organizations streamline payroll administration by enabling them to make the switch to 100 percent electronic payroll,” said Gary Lott, ADP general manager and division vice president, ADP Electronic Payments, Unemployment Claims, Employment Verification and Wage Garnishment Services. “Through the ALINE Card and our agreement with Visa, we’re empowering today’s workforce to save money and time through online bill pay, mobile access, account balance alerts via text or email and the ability to make purchases in stores, online and over the phone.”
